mentioned. but missing in the discussions, and i don't think that this was planned to be announced during this visit is the question of how much money will be required for the afghan national security forces which have reached 344,000. and hire being 174,000, and congress mr. have a say. >> brown: the question of the scale and speed of the drawdown estimate to come as the president said, but much of this is about what happened afterwards, after 2014, that so-called security agreement of some kind. >> yes, absolutely. two key issues for the future of afghanistan is the political certainty. for an afghan, insecurity is to the a problem, it's uncertainty. the fact we don't know what we are transitioning too. what is next for afghan. part of that has to be form nature-- formulated by the afghan political leadership. they can help to a certain degree but we still do need to hear very clearly what is in for afghanistan after 2014, as far as what from the national partner but most importantly how afghanistan itself sees itself in a changing region. >> what about this of hamid karzai saying he wi
volunteered to go to vietnam? >> i don't think that's a relevant issue. i think it's quite noble and honorable that he did so. i think if you asked his friend, say, senator mccain, who also went to vietnam and suffered quite horribly, they have a different view about the exercise. >> fair enough. about american power. ifill: do you think that that vietnam experience and how it has influenced whatever his thinking is today is a good thing or a bad thing? >> i would say in senator hagel's case it has been a profound... it has had a profound impact on him. he's the first generation of what you might call the vietnam syndrome. he's scared of the use of force abroad. i would just suggest that since world war ii i think the order that we have known, the prosperous more or less peaceful order that we have known as been because of the exercise of american power abroad. i think senator hagel was wrong on iraq. he's wrong on afghanistan. and i think these are very dangerous times. he's in fact in serious disagreement with the president. the president made it very clear that if iran does not stop its nuc
rural areas don't have a magistrate or a district attorney on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week in order to look at the warrant request, and he asked, well, should all of the country operate the way new york city does. and mr. shapiro said no, but, in the absence of any evidence, getting a warrant a cumbersome and time consuming or that having the warrant or not having the warrant requirement affects the conviction rate you shouldn't dispense with the warrant requirement. >> does a case like this fit into etiological sides that you can, you know, compare to other cases or is this somehow different when you get into a fourth amendment search? >> sometimes the fourth amendment does show an etiological divide on the court but on this argument in particular, i didn't see that. i thought, across the board, the court was leery of dispensing with the warrant requirement, and they were looking for, perhaps, some kind of a compromise here, saying that the police, at least, have to try to get the warrant, and if they don't get the warrant, then maybe the courts in general should look at t
outburst was something you don't often see from him. other people in the room said that for jack lew that's angry but it's not necessarily how other people display their anger. >> woodruff: jared bernstein, what's he like to work with? >> very insightful, deep knowledge of fiscal matters. he's been working, as you heard, on budgetary issues for about three decades and these are issues that get more and more complicated. jack keeps that all in his head. extremely good listener, very reasonable person but one of the things you always hear that reminded me in listening to juliana, a constant in my work with jack and his career has been a recognition that one of the important roles of government is the to protect economically vulnerable people. you heard hit in the medicaid story but you can say the same thing about protecting the social safety net, about medicare. this isn't a guy who won't put spending cuts on the table or won't even entertain -- he's a guy who would entertain cutss to entitlements but they have to be structured in a way that protect economically vulnerable retirees people
, many libyans are in hiding. some are openly hiding in libya because they don't fear an immediate arrest. so while this attack happened in benghazi, there were huge militant groups operating within the country and traveling freely into libya. >> ifill: if this is true that there were dozens of suspects, some of them -- people are keeping an eye on them in different countries, who is in charge of this investigation? >> well, it's a libyan-led investigation but the problem is the libyans who are in charge of the investigation some of them have only been in security operations for a year. and they're not really experienced on how to conduct such a complex investigation. while they're working with the f.b.i. this happened within the jurisdiction of benghazi and therefore the libyans have the authority over the case unless the libyan cans pull the case together it makes it hard for courts in other countries like tunisia to build a case because it hinges on what the libyans are able to pull together in terms of evidence, witnesses and all that has been exceptionally difficult in libya. the pol
